blocking flashplayer pop ups

Hiya,

When surfing on some sites, I get a "you're a winner!" type of pop up window which when I right click on, I get a series of flash player options.

How can I block these?

I run XP Home with Firefox & IE available to me. I already use Adblock Plus in Firefox but this can't deal with it.

Any ideas?

Noscript for FF found to be much better than Adblock

Cheers Fruitbat, nice to hear from you again.

Yes, I know about NoScript & I've used it in the past but got fed up with it constantly popping up & not disappearing when I actioned its warning. Guess I'll have to try again & resolve the issues I had with it by studying its options & settings a bit more carefully.

Thanks mate.
